Increasing independence and quality of life – for people using wheelchairs
In Australia, there are approximately 193,600 people that use a wheelchair, and for many, trivida® wheels can mean the difference between being independent or needing a carer to lift them in and out of their wheelchair.

Increasing independence and quality of life – for people using wheelchairs

In Australia it is estimated that there are currently approximately 193,600 people that use wheelchairs which is 4.4% of people with a disability (17.7% or 4.4 million people).

Having the ability to move barrier free from a wheelchair to other seating arrangements, go to the bathroom independently and get in and out of bed independently – this ability changes the way life can be lived – creating opportunities for more fun, freedom and a richer experience.

trivida wheels have been specifically designed to improve independence and mobility.

For example, think about how you would feel – lying in bed waiting for a carer to help you out, even though you’ve been awake for hours and want to get your day going?

Most of us take many daily tasks for granted, but for many people using wheelchairs many of these tasks are difficult if not impossible without assistance.  In some cases, two carers may be required depending on the capability and size of the person needing assistance to transfer.

For many people that use a wheelchair this is incredibly frustrating and is likely to have an effect on their outlook on life and mental health and wellbeing.  For some this prevents them from social outings without assistance, participating in family events, enjoying a movie or theatre experience, eating out or being able to work in an office environment.

This was exactly the case for one of our clients before he had access to trivida® wheels – he needed to go to bed when a carer was available which was often very early in the evening.  The wheels have allowed him to live life his way – which is what every human wants – a sense of freedom, independence and choice.

The trivida® wheel has been specifically designed for the top segment of the wheel to be removed to allow easy and safe transfers to and from a wheelchair.  The unique design ensures the wheelchair remains stable and can be used with or without a transfer board – depending on the persons capability.

Independence, Mobility & Social Inclusion

A world first, award winning true invention and new to Australia the trivida® detachable wheelchair wheel allows wheelchair users to make an obstacle-free transfer – from and into the wheelchair – for the first time enhancing quality of life & independence for patient/users health outcomes.

Re-inventing the wheel in a good way!
